Klöckner Pentaplast – Launch of new floatable shrink label film

GERMANY • The general packaging manufacturer has unveiled plans to launch new floatable shrink label film and digital print film at Label Summit Latin America in Cartagena, Colombia. The new products have been designated as Pentalabel ClearFloat and Pentalabel LV PETG with Y460 coating.

ClearFloat films have been designed with technology offering high-performing shrink percentages for maximum design freedom. In addition, the films use ink adhesion passing APR label protocol with gravure, flexo, digital and rotary offset printing processes. Potential applications for the product include consumer packaged goods using PET bottle for beverage, dairy, food, health and beauty, home and garden and household. The films are available from KP’s global sites in Europe and North America.

Meanwhile, LV PETG Films with Y460 coating provides high-resolution digital printing solutions for shrink-sleeve packaging. The foating facilitates a seamed sleeve that can be applied either by hand or mechanically at high speeds. Clear overprint varnish (OPV) applied on top of the ink surface of the coating enables high-speed application.
